The YouTube sensation LonelyGirl15’s Jessica Rose has accepted a small role in an upcoming film starring Lindsay Lohan called “I Know Who Killed Me.”
Rose answered an ad on Craigslist last year and began filming a series of video blogs produced by screenwriter and filmmaker Ramesh Flinders and former surgical resident and current filmmaker Miles Beckett. The series became phenominally popular as a voyeuristic-soap-opera-esque drama, and until the project was “outed” by the YouTube community, it moved on to Revver, a similar video sharing site that shares its revenues with its contributors.
There’s a really good summary of the series on Wikipedia, I won’t rehash that here. But you may be interested in the interview with its creators, taken shortly after YouTube was bought out by the big G.
